Buffalo rock state park. In the 60's this land that was once inhabited by Illinois indians was destroyed by mining. The Ottawa Silica company who owned the land hired Michael Heizer in 1983 to create effigies, mounds constructed in the shape of animals to pay tribute to the native indians that once inhabited the land. These effigies can only be seen from satellite images. There is a catfish, frog, snake, turtle and a water strider. Reclaiming this beautiful land and turning it into a state park saved it from destruction. #buffalorockstatepark #illinoisparks #effigies #parkhistory #ottawaillinois #parklife #illinoisindians #naturalillinois #optoutside #getoutside #fortheloveofparks #onlyinillinois #enjoyillinois #midwestexplorers #nature_perfection #outdoorillinois
Good evening everyone! I hope you are all doing well and had a great Thanksgiving. Obviously it has been a while since my last post, but it has been a hectic time since our return from vacation. I am still working on some of those photos, but I have been wanting to share this one for a while. I actually tool this back on November 13th and it was the result a local recommendation. I was really surprised how easy it was to get to this location. I guess I always imagined that it would be a bit of a pain to get to, so I never attempted... I also walked away with several ideas for more photos, so I will be back. #nightphotography #nightphotos #nightphotoshoot #landscapephotography #photosergereview #longexposure #amazing_longexpo #longexposure_shots #longexposureshots #hdrphotography #hdr_beautiful_landscapes #hdr #sunsetphotos #sunset #mississippiriver #illinois #onlyinillinois #quincyil #quincy #rightonq

Do you know what bird this is? It's a winter wren and can be seen in wooded areas in DuPage County in winter or during migration in summer and fall. Per unit weight, the little bird delivers its song with 10 times more power than a crowing rooster! . Tell us where you’ve spotted this bird in the preserves.
Happy Tuesday!!!!

A reminder that even during the dark, cold and dreary days of winter somewhere on the planet flowers continue to bloom. If the flowers won't come to me then I'll just go to the flowers. #lookup
